Sally Maaz (17) died in Mayo University Hospital on April 24. Her cousin speaks out in this video. On Tuesday April 14, Sally was admitted to Mayo University Hospital with multiple conditions. She was a ‘high-risk’ patient with a congenital heart defect. Sally was moved to the Covid-19 ward that same night, despite twice testing NEGATIVE for Covid-19.
Sally’s parents, Abdullah and Rula Maaz, were “not allowed” to visit Sally from Tuesday night to Sunday night. They have serious concerns over the treatment of Sally during those days. On Wednesday night Sally called her mother in distress, after a nurse gave her a pill which induced a severe allergic attack (including vomiting, choking and breathing problems). Sally’s family said the medication “clotted up her lungs” and made her condition worse.
The next morning at 10:30am a doctor rang Rula Maaz, apologising for the medication given to Sally. He said Sally’s doctor from Crumlin (who performed her first operation as a baby) had approved the medication, but the family say this doctor never heard from the hospital.
